Welcome
 

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Dripping Springs web site.  We invite you to take a look around our site and to find out more about our club and about Rotary International.  If, after considering what we offer you and the community, you would like to look into membership, suggest a project or are interested in speaking for the club, please contact us here.

The Rotary Club is a service organization focusing on local and international needs.  Locally, we have sponsored projects such as:

 * Construction of concession and restroom facilities at the local sports park

 * Construction of therapeutic gardens at a local assisted living facility

 * Construction of picnic area improvements for the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce

 * Supporting the local food bank

 * Helping a local center for disadvantaged youths with repairs and improvements

 * Annual tribute to veterans on Veteran's Day. 

 * Home & Garden Show

To pay for all of this we raise funds through dues, and various fund raisers.

We meet Monday at noon at Flores Mexican Restaurant, two miles or so east of Dripping Springs on Highway 290.  We conduct club business, have social time for the members and have a wide variety of speakers discussing issues that impact our community, our country, or internationally.

We host several social events as well as fund raising events throughout the year.  All of our activities are open; we have no secrets and we are proud of who we are.  We enjoy our Rotary membership and seek to support our community and the greater good through service.  After all, the motto of Rotary is "service above self," and we seek to embody that.

Stop by, you don't need a reservation, or drop us a note and we will answer any questions about our club.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects
Through The Rotary Foundation, Rotary members have supported thousands of projects that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, save mothers and children, support education, and grow local economies.

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
